February 2-9, 2013 | Montezuma, Costa Rica
If you love yoga and want to go deeper into your practice, here's your opportunity: Banyan, who's been our official yoga teacher of awesomeness for many years(as well as a true ninja with the staffs both straight and curvy), is offering a 7-day yoga immersion in Montezuma, Costa Rica!
Never afraid to have a laugh and always prepared to challenge students on levels physical, mental, and energetic, anyone who's spent time in the tutelage of this athlete/mustache competitor/performance artist/yogi/clown will speak to Banyan's capabilities as a teacher.
This retreat will revolve around a deeper understanding of yoga and tantra, the ancient yogic science of techniques designed to help us overcome our limitations(think not just tight hamstrings, but deeper fears and mental blocks). Banyan’s deep and yet playful approach will inspire a loving self-inquiry and a new direction to your practice. All levels of student are welcome.
Each day the group will have two powerful sessions together. The morning session, from 7-9 am, will be a more solar, physical practice to help us wake, detox and prepare for the day. The afternoon session, usually 5:30 - 7:00pm, will be on the more subtle side focusing on philosophy, breathwork, meditation, and inversions. The schedule is designed to maximize free time so we can explore everything the Nicoya Peninsula has to offer.
Two healthy, gorgeous meals a day are included, as well as accommodation and a snorkeling trip to the even more remote Tortuga island. The retreat is held seconds away from the beach, and minutes away from a jungle waterfall, with plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. So whether you crave a day alternating between hammocks and massage tables or cliff-diving and surfing, you'll find a way.
This will truly be a life-changing retreat, with a small, intimate group. Expect to leave more relaxed, invigorated and with more mental clarity on how to live your life to the fullest.
We here at playpoi are tickled watermelon pink that this retreat is timed just a few days after our own retreat in montezuma! Rumor has it that a few of our favorite spinners will stay on and combine both events into one experience sure to transform anyone into the Self they've always believed themselves to be!
